One of the driving schools I went to is a permanent course laid out on a flood plain ( as is the soccer fields and helipads), but as it is inside a leveed flood canal, they are not allowed to build permanent buildings. 

So the driving school uses a bus. It has a desk, a waiting room, and everything.  It has parked in the same spot for years, day in and day out, occasionally moved to higher ground during a typhoon. It is a drivable vehicle.

I tagged that bus as a building (and named it “バス” - “bus" in Japanese) - it's where you need to go for the driving school, and it is always there.
